Review: Ok, so I got these shipped in, opened the box, and I was happily suprised. I had the impression they'd be thin and cheap. I tried them on and just felt like shooting someone (in the paintball way of course), they just feel good, not tight, not loose, just "right". They weren't hot, they had a nice feel to them, not sticky or anything.

The PADDING! Ok, so it's not layered on like Dye C4s, but instead it has rubber pads across the fingers small enough to not mess with flexibility, but big enough that paintballs can't fit between them and hurt you. CUZ THAT HURTS! If you get a finger shot good luck trying to walk your trigger or hold that marker. The back of the hand is well done with a nice breathable mesh layer and foam padding that works just dandy.

The grip on the front has been debated, it's a sorta synthetic leather, but what leather feels like on the inside, slightly drier and rougher. Alot like a tough suede. It has a lot of stitching across it for some extra grip and it all works well. Unless ur handle is polished steel without grips you're not dropping anything unless you have the muscles of an infant. In which case they don't make gloves that small.

The glove will flex around pretty good, better than alot, while keeping it's form-fitting shape. The velcro closure has come under some criticism, it doesn't LOOK like it fits right, but it's never popped open or come loose. Finally the material on the thumb came in handy for wiping splatter on ur lens, ur thumb will get wet from paint tho, cuz it's not waterproof there.
Conclusion: High quality, good price, a little hard to find, but worth it. If you don't want to mess with ur game, but you do want to protect your hands against damage. Buy them over the others, NEVER buy Angel gloves (WDP), they're pathetic. These are a happy medium allowing acual protection (Evil rallys offer none) without sacrificing flexibility and breathability (Dye C4s are thick and hot). Nothings perfect, but some things are better than the rest.
